The Scottish National Party’s Mr Pete Wishart MP,  Member of Parliament for Perth & North Perthshire, has highlighted a new project which could give young people, aged between 14 and 24, hoping to carve out a career in the music industry, the opportunity to transform their dreams into a reality. Two of the biggest names in UK music – Global Radio’s Capital FM and the BPI - have joined forces with youth work charity UK Youth, to help young people get the transferable skills they need to take a step closer to achieving their dreams. The Big Music Project is supported by a £4million grant from The Big Lottery Fund. Speaking today (Tuesday) Mr Wishart said: “I was lucky enough to have a great career in the music industry but I know from my early days how hard it is to get the right advice and the right breaks.  “The Big Music Project is about inspiring young people to reach for ambitious personal goals and giving them the practical help than can make those dreams achievable. “Whether they eventually choose a career in the music industry or decide to follow another route, there are opportunities here to learn some fantastic transferable skills.”
